Great Company but limited room for growth and job security is questionable

I have been working at BECU

Pros

Credit Union values and great products and services compared to bigger banks. Offers great benefits to members, saves them money.

Cons

While becoming bigger every year, they're also becoming more like banks with how they pressure their employees on their sales target/ goals. They fire employes who doesn't meet their targets even if they've been there for 5, 10, 15 or so years. In conjunction to this, they cap the commissions/bonuses of those who go over and beyond their targets.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Treat your old employees better than how you treat them now. Give them some credit and respect because they are the ones who brought the company to where it is now.

    I worked at BECU full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Benefits - 100% company paid medical, dental, vision insurance. 20 days of PTO. Bank holidays. Gym reimbursement.

    Cons

    Poor compensation in terms of salary and incentive pay compared to similar roles at other financial insitutations.

    Executives don't care how employees feel about changes. "If you don't like it then quit" attitude and this was actually said during a district meeting.

    No growth potential. Very rarely are there positions that open up that are not Member Consultant positions.

    No consistency on how manangers review, coach, and reprimand employees. Managers also pick and choose favorites. One person can be exceeding their goals while the other could just be meeting their goals and the person that is performing at the minimum will get a better review and raise than the person that's overachieving.

    Really low employee moral.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop more growth opportunities for your employees.

    Be consistent across the board. One manager should be using the same metrics in rating their employees as the other.

    Branch Managers need to be held accountable too. Isn't it a sign that it's not an employee issue when a branch has 100% turnover in a 3 month period and then has 100% turn over again a year later?

    I worked at BECU full-time

    Pros

    The institution is very good at employee engagement although you do have to drink the Cool-Aid. Benefits are great for the employee, but not so much for dependents. Good vacation/sick leave benefits and great co-workers.

    Cons

    Tukwila Corporate location sucks. You have to bring your lunch or drive to SouthCenter to get food. The employee floors aren't very inviting...gray carpet, black cabinets, stained chairs and low light. As far as I could tell there is not any manager oversight...one manager might be great, the one next door might be punitive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more attention to how your management staff interacts with employees.
